Cameron Diaz is ready to get â€œBadâ€ again. The actress has signed on as a producer for CBSâ€™s series adaptation of her 2011 film Bad Teacher, which starred Diaz as Elizabeth Halsey, an individual familiar with the move told TheWrap on Thursday.
The series will star Fringe actress Ari Graynor as Meredith Davis, a hot, confident, unapologetic trophy wife who takes a job at a middle school to meet a new man after her husband leaves her without a dime. Sex and the City alum Kristin Davis will play Meredithâ€™s nemesis Ginny, a math teacher, choir director and faculty president.
Bad Teacher is being produced by Sony Pictures Television in association with Mosaic Media Group. â€œMy Name Is Earlâ€ and â€œCommunityâ€ veteran Hilary Winston is executive-producing. Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, who were behind the film, are executive-producing as well, along with Jimmy Miller, Sam Hansen and Michael Lasker.
The series will premiere mid-season. (Source)
